Introduction I have been pulled in three major directions in my life: science, policy (especially energy and resource policy, including political activism), and entrepreneurship.My current job pulls in all three threads.
Interests Really passionate about slowing climate change and breaking our addiction to fossil fuels before it is too late. My piece of that puzzle is to advocate for a supergrid, and to contribute to making the supergrid possible technologically. My two particular contributions are elpipes (underground high capacity, high efficiency transmission lines), and Ballistic Breakers, which are a key technology to enable DC grids at several different levels, from microgrids to supergrids. I joined Alevo and brought my inventions with me; I continue to work on these important technologies from my new address at Alevo's 2000-acre, 3.5 million square foot factory site in Concord NC.
Favorite Movies "In America" "Whale Rider" for example...you might say these are "chick flicks;" certainly they are not action films.
Favorite Music snippets: Jimmy Cliff "You can get it if you really want, " Cat Stevens "peace train, " Beethoven:Symphony #7

Why do you think honeydew is the money melon?

It is gold colored. Thank God we gave up on the gold standard.
